This week in 4B..

Happy Monday!  
I hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday Snow!

A couple reminders: 
-GAME DAY tomorrow!  Students are allowed to bring their technology for free time.  Please send electronics at your own risk.  Your child is responsible.
-Please sign and return Math tests that are going home today.  Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to come in and view your child's test.  
-Don't forget to bring library books on Wednesday!
-Please make sure your child arrives at school promptly.  They have Giving Assembly jobs that they are very excited about this week that begin as soon as the bell rings. 
-Don't forget Old Bohomme's first book fair of the school year is being held at the Ladue Barnes & Noble the weekend of Nov 21st-23rd3!  Mr. Hearn's choir will be performing at the store Friday night at 6:30, and there will be a table set up with books you can purchase from OB teachers' wish lists. This is a great way to contribute to your child's classroom library!  Don't worry if you can't make it there on Friday--the OB library will get a percentage of purchases for the entire weekend as long as you mention Old Bonhommeduring your purchase!  If you have any questions, please contact Susan Kelley at skelley@ladueschools.net.

"In Reading we are working on Wordmasters to build our vocabulary, we took a quiz on adverbs, we learned how to make inferences while we read AND we got new spelling words."  -Rami

 -Zakiya
